Charlotte Perkins Gilman

"Herland" is Charlotte Perkins Gilman's utopian novel about a fictitious society of women who reproduce by asexual means resulting in an ideal society that is free of conflict and war. Originally published in serial form in Gilman's self-published monthly magazine "Forerunner" from 1909 to 1916, the title nation of "Herland" is symbolic of the argument for social reform in the area of woman's rights that took place in the early part of the 20th century in America. By placing women in such an ideal light, Gilman is arguing that women should have as much say in the matters of the world as men and if they did society would be better off for it.
